Gremio confirm signing of Fabio Aurelio

The Brazilian has parted company with the Reds after six years at Anfield and is on his way back to Porto Alegre after agreeing a one-and-a-half year deal with the Tricolor
Gremio have announced the signing of Fabio Aurelio on a free transfer following his release from Liverpool.

The left-back, who had been at Anfield for six seasons, has put pen to paper on a contract with the Tricolor that will keep him in Porto Alegre until December 2013.

Aurelio joined Liverpool from Valencia in 2006 but the 32-year-old Brazilian's time at Anfield was blighted by injuries and he made just 86 appearances for the Reds.
